Hp z420
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My pc was working just fine  then it started to give me 6 beeps when I turn it on

I tried another video card and it worked .

I have gtx 1050 ti video card

 

Side note : about 5% percent of the times the pc will start and act normal and the gpu runs ..  but mostly it will not and the gpu fans won't spin and I get the same 6 beeps.

Some technicians told me it's a power supply problem and others told me my gpu is dead although it works sometimes

Hi
Depending on the age of the PC and the BIOS vendor...

Possibilities...

Power button LED blinks 6 times with 6 beeps

Video Card or Graphics - Reset the graphics card (if applicable). If the problem is not resolved, remove other accessory cards, and replace the graphics card or Main-Board.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

LED blinks 6 times - BIOS

BIOS authentication failure.  Restore BIOS if available.

Press the Windows+ B keys to do a BIOS recovery or replace the Main-Board.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OR

6 beeps Pre-video graphics card error: (BIOS did not detect a VGA-compatible device) For systems with integrated graphics, replace system board. For systems with graphic cards, • 1 Reseat the graphics card. Power on the system. • 2 Replace the graphics card. • 3 Replace the system board.
